Abstract:

Work was devoted primarily to studying the electrode reactions that occur on Monel electrodes during the electrochemical fluorination of ammonium ion in anhydrous hydrogen fluoride AHF and to investigating possible new electrode materials. Film resistance and cathodic stripping measurements were performed on Monel electrodes. Weight loss measurements, at open circuit and at a constant anodic potential, and anodic polarization studies were performed on Hastelloy-F, cadmium, and zinc electrodes in AHF. Both cadmium and zinc corroded rapidly in AHF, but Hastelloy-F exhibited an extremely low corrosion rate. Several types of liquid and gas IR cells have been investigated. Calibration IR spectra were made to determine their lower limits of detection for NF3g.
